Anyone know where I can buy a copy of this? All I see on Amazon is "non-US" format. I'm so irritated how movies like this and Creation do not get a US distributor.

On PZ Myers blog they had this too. Someone (maybe PZ) said that the US distributor had initially released it in a few cities and then decided against wider distribution because of the content (obviously not very pro Christianity). When you go to the movie website it doesn't say anything about release or distribution in the US. I would love to see it.

Perhaps my favourite scene in this movie takes place on the boat. That one scene sums up the moving scientific principle described by Dawkins in 'The Root of all evil' when he recounts the old man striding to the front, and shaking the hand of the one who proved his long held scientific theory to be wrong.

When I saw the response of Hypatia to the data which laid waste to her long held theory, I was immediately transported in my mind into the classroom with Dawkins and his young fellows clapping their hands raw in response to their 'Old Professor' having been disavowed of his long held belief, and their appreciation that science had advanced in search of truth..

That single scene puts the advancing light of science which seeks to know for the sake of knowing in stark contradistinction to the backward darkness of religion, which does not seek to know, and will do everything within it's power to insure that others too will be prevented from knowing, as is to be seen in the attack upon the repository of knowledge in this film. This movie is a must see for you all, don’t miss it.

The role that Christianity played in bringing about the Dark Ages should be taught in high school. I was astounded when I first read about it a couple of years ago in Jennifer Michael Hecht's book Doubt. Of course, I'm not holding my breath since the Christians rule over us all.

I just watched the movie, but the subtitles are not in a language I can understand. I will look for it with English subtitles, but it was beautiful. Thank you for sharing the link.
